Io e la Mamma (Mommy and Me) Playgroup
FREE, Weekly Italian Language Playgroup for Children Ages 18 to 42 months Old
UPDATE: 2017/18 Schedule September 8th playgroup moves to Fridays from 10:00 – 11:30 am.
It is never too early to share a second language with a child. In fact, there are many wonderful benefits to learning a second language at a young age. Studies show that children who learn a second language early are more likely to develop native-like fluency. Children also experience better overall school performance and enhanced problem solving skills. Additionally, children develop stronger communication skills with foreign language exposure.
Led by a native Italian teacher, Io e la Mamma is designed to engage children ages 18 to 42 months and a parent or caregiver with simple language immersion through games, music, crafts, free play and other activities.
Io e la Mamma is held on most Friday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30 am at Friendly House in the Pearl, located at 1542 NW 14th Ave (between Quimby and Raleigh Streets). We encourage participants to sign up for email notifications and to RSVP for play sessions. Although an RSVP is not required, it does help the instructor prepare sufficient materials for the group.
